It's George Carlin's birthday, so what better way to pay tribute than with one of the people who knew him best, his "spouse without papers," Sally Wade. She reveals the George that not everyone got to know and talks about her last moments with him. Sally provides a fitting homage to a man who influenced just about every comedian in the business.

    She is such a beautiful woman. I love hearing about this side of George.

    Aside from the Carlin stuff, Sally Wade is interesting in her own right. I actually remember that "Dobie Brothers" episode from "What's Happening." It had the line "Which Dobie would you be?"

    Thanks for this!
    I cried my heart out the night he died. This made me weep again but its ok.
    I love seeing the sweet and soft side of George and for the record I also thought the suicide routine was fucking hilarious!!

    I got to see George live not too long before he was gone. I am poor but I told myself "this might be my only chance," not realizing how true that thought would turn out to be.
    He came out on stage and pulled out a stack of notes, sayed he hoped we didn't mind if he tried out some new stuff for the first time.
    What a thrill, getting to see an artist actually working on his craft from the first draft.
    Some of that is what later became his final HBO special.

    The man was one of a kind.

    Oh my God. I made the mistake of listening to this while working out. I was just finishing a round on the heavy bag by the end of the podcast and was almost in tears when Sally mentioned the screen saver thing. Nothing more uncomfortable than a crying, punching man working out next to you in the gym.

    Great podcast.

    For another close view of the man, from before the time discussed in Maron's podcast, is the live interview David Feldman did with Carlin's daughter, Kelly. She knew an earlier Carlin, and is herself a fascinating person. That interview can be found at Feldman's podcast site:

    Both Maron and Feldman's respective interviews together help to provide a multifaceted portrait of the man, and to glimpse firsthand his influence on two different, impressive women.
